If you don't have a donut baking pan, get one! It will change you life- I'm not kidding. Baked donuts are much more cake like and if you bake them right (follow directions) then I promise they will melt in your mouth. Forget
Baked Apple Spice Donuts
- 1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 cup oat flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
- 1/2 tsp each cinnamon, nutmeg & allspice
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 cup stevia in the raw or 8 packs stevia
- 1 tsp quality vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp light extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce or homemade apple butter (recipe coming soon!)
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup milk of choice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 6 cup donut tin and a 12 cup mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl sift together all of the dry ingredients.
In a seperate bowl beat together the liquid ingredients until smooth. Gently fold into the dry mixture, mixing only until incorporated. *Do NOT overmix!!!!*
Evenly divide the dough in the prepared pans- you will get 6 round donuts and 12 donut holes.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let rest in pan a few minutes before transfering to a wire rack to cool.
Optional spiced coating to roll in while hot: 1 tbsp cinnamon + 1/3 cup stevia in the raw
(1 large donut or 2 donut holes)
